What State & Local Government Professionals Say about Eos

Theresa Lancy

“Because the cost and effort involved was fairly minimal, it just made a lot more sense to go ahead and set up our own base station. We also thought there could be other groups in the city that would use this system.”

Theresa Lancy

Water Distribution Supervisor, City of Santa Barbara / CA, United States

Daniel Pilote

“Two years ago, we went with the Arrow 100, and it’s much more accurate than the Garmin. Now, we are sure we will get back to the same tree — at the same exact spot.”

Daniel Pilote

Forestry Technician, City of Montreal / QC, Canada

Meg Gaillard

“We barely ever use paper anymore. We’ve gone completely digital. We’re using our iPads, iPhones, Arrows, and the Esri platform. I don’t know how we would do our job on heritage at-risk sites like Pockoy without being able to use this technology.”

Meg Gaillard

Heritage Trust Archaeologist, South Carolina Department of Natural Resources / SC, United States

Jacqueline Foushee

“We want to migrate completely off our legacy software systems and onto GIS. If we can have the true, absolute locations of all the things we track, then it will be easier for all of us to do our jobs. That’s going to make a real difference.”

Jacqueline Foushee

Former City Engineer and Current City Business Administrator, City of Rahway / NJ, United States

Yousre Odeh

“I have never been more satisfied with the accuracy and convenience of collecting data.”
